View Full Version : opengl.dll vs opengl32.dll

I'm just finished setting up openGL environment on my machine. When I try to run some sample programs, during the run-time, it says that it can't find opengl.dll, and sure enough it is not on my machine, since all installation instructions only mention and include opengl32.dll.
Where can I get opengl.dll?

Thank you.

Are these programs you are compiling yourself? If so, you should be linking to opengl32.dll instead of opengl.dll. If I remember right the opengl.dll and glu.dll functions contained the old SGI software implementation of OpenGL. For hardware accelleration, you'll probably want opengl32.dll, which can pass things on to the drivers supplied with your card.

I found it once before, but I lost the website link. But I can email it to you if you would like.
